Description

This is 5.5 hours of SII data added to the 21.5 hours of Ha and O3 data I already had gathered for a total integration time of 27 hours.

The Hubble Palette was used:
L = Ha
R = SII
G = Ha
B = OIII

Version B is similar but I reworked the color a bit using selective color and scnr. This is closer to the color I envision for it.

Version C pulls back the stars a bit.

Version D removed the stars, adjusted the nebulosity, and put the stars back in.
